Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My time at Mario's was not only one of my strongest airbnb experiences but among the best in all my travels. While you have a separate room in his apartment, the rooms are so quiet and spacious that it feels like a studio apartment. And sharing space with Mario and his other guests, two Danes and a mother and daughter from Uruguay, while sitting at breakfast talking about our day, was the highlight of my time in Rome. I felt totally at home there, and so will you. He is a tour guide and arranged taxis for me, was dependable and approachable in every way. I cannot recommend his space highly enough. Bravo!

  • Our stay in Mario's apartment in Trastevere was great! The apartment is beautiful, has all the amenities one could need, as well as great views. The location is perfect, in a fun and beautiful neighborhood yet close to everything. On top of all that, Mario is a very kind and friendly host -with a nice dog -, and helped us a lot to get through the city in just 3 days seeing everything that is really interesting and only partly to be found in the travel guides. All in all, we cannot recommend highly enough a stay with friends@home in Rome. We had a fabulous time.

  • Nous étions un couple en vacances pour une semaine.
    A propos du quartier : nous ne pouvions imaginer mieux. Le trastevere est très agréable, il y a des plein de restaurants, de bars juste en bas de la maison. Une ambiance typique, et nous avons visité Rome à pied entièrement
    A propos de l'appartement : très joli appartement, propre, lumineux, avec un très belle terrasse sur le toit. Nous avions un petit déjeuner très bien fourni, avec un capuccino tous les matins !
    A propos de l'hôte : Mario nous a mis à l'aise dès le début, nous a donné les meilleures adresses, et a répondu à toutes nos questions. Il est toujours là quand nous avons un problème. Et il est plein de petites attentions
    Nous recommandons à 100% !!!

  • Mario was an exceptional host. The room was spacious, clean, and had a wonderful view.
    We ran into a few problems with our flight before we got there and got pushed back a full day before we arrived. I was worried that we lost a paid day, but Mario was wonderful and let us stay for the amount of days we paid for since he had an available day.
    We also arrived a few hours later than we had told him because of delays and strikes, and again, he waited for us to arrive before he left the house. He kept in great contact with us and helped us find the place when we got lost.
    Once there, he sat down with us and showed us great restaurants and great walking paths to the sights. His place is about 20 minutes walking distance to everything in Rome, you couldn't ask for a better location. You are also a step away from amazing food and bars.
    Mario was a wonderful host the whole time we were there, he treated us like family and made sure everything was going well for us. We will be staying here for our next trip to Rome. I would recommend him to anyone.

  • We had a really good stay at Mario's place. Mario is a wonderful host (who speaks french perfectly) always ready to help us out. The flat is in the best part of town to enjoy nice roman evenings and to go everywhere by foot.

  • You cannot find a better place to stay in Rome than with Mario and Guapo! Everything is great: the location, a nice and bright room with a great view, everything is very clean and of course Mario himself. He does everything for his guests. I stayed here with my mother and sister. He told us all the places we had to go (or took us there), answered all our questions, made the best cappuccinos, taught us how to make the best cappuccinos and even taught us how to make your own pasta! He's always cheerful and funny. Also, he took very good care of me when I was ill, if I needed anything I could just ask. It's hard to leave!!! I'll be back!

  • First time booking through airbnb, first time staying at Marios place in Trastevere - and definitely not the last! My mother and I had the most wonderful time in Rome thanks to Mario. He is the perfect host. He welcomed us on our arrival and carried our 2 heavy suitcases to the 4th flor. Then he made us a welcome drink and told us what to do and where to go. His recommendations for restaurants were excellent. My mother turned 70 during our stay and Mario made us Tiramisu and served not a glass, but a bottle of "bobbles". We had some nice talks and Mario is really an extraordinary person - open, funny, warm ....... we could continue for ever. The apartment is perfectly situated in walking distance from all the things you would want to see in Rome. The room we had was spacious and the bed was the best bed I have ever slept in! The apartment was nice and cosy and everything was vey clean. Cannot wait to be back- then we will definitely try the segway tours that Mario also arrange. Mario & Guapo - thanks for everything and if you ever come to Copenhagen you will be more than welcome =0) Bisous.

  • Mario and Guapo are probably some of the two nicest hosts possible. We stayed for four nights in this very nice and beautiful place in the heart of Rome. Mario gave us many perfect recommendations to eat and to visit in and around Trastevere. We really hope to come back soon and the only place we would stay would be with Mario and Guapo. Thank you so much for the wonderful time!

  • Nous avons énormément apprécié notre séjour chez Mario. L'endroit est idéalement situé, selon les conseils de Mario nous avons pu goûter la délicieuse nourriture italienne des petites trattorias familiales du quartier. Mario est une personne formidable, aux petits soins et de très bon conseil. L'appartement très confortable et propre. On recommande vivement le tour de Rome en segway avec Mario ! Une expérience formidable ! Merci Mario !

  • Mario's apartment was spacious and clean, located in the very hip neighborhood of Trastevere. It was close to a lot of good food, and Mario was really helpful pointing out places we should check out on the map. Mario was an absolute pleasure as a host--warm, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We look forward to staying with him again, next time we visit Rome!
